there. it's an interesting tactic. make a quick point. the obama administration is selectively picks its issues it wants to go after and the one it doesn't. arizona decided they had their own immigration law. the department of justice says no, no, you can't do that. we'll sue you. arizona sues arizona. they will enforce the federal law, not the arizona law. pot in colorado, pot in washington state, you have your own law there. we'll look the other way on your law there. because they don't care about it. >> andrea: california. >> eric: not so much california. but the point they want guns. they want to go after guns so they will find a way, find an tissue go and really beef up the gun control. >> andrea: they also shrekively picked their allies, bob, right? >> bob: what administration doesn't pick issues they want to go after? >> eric: it esegregious. >> andrea: what about their allies? remember we listened to the left say wal-mart was evil, terrible now. they're partnering up with them? the nra was at the meeting today. they put out a statement. i know you have thoughts on it. here is wha
deportations, you can see the total so far during the obama administration, 1.5 million. for the entirity of the bush administration, two terms in office, we saw about two million deportations. and then in 2012 alone, nearly -- more than, rather, 400,000 immigrants deported, which is a record high. our next phone call is from mark in new jersey, republican. hi, mark. caller: good morning. i'm also a municipal chair here for the republican committee. i'm also going to be running for the state republican committee. i think the idea given immigration reform is absurd. we look at all the construction work there's these people have devalued over the years. who compensates them? we talk about equality and everything else and helping people. these illegal immigrants have destroyed more african-american communities because of the lack of jabs being taken by these people. they're devaluing our weages. you look at the drug problems that are across the country that these people are transporting, and then you want to give them amnesty and make them legal citizens? they've criminals. they've destroyed
of the obama administration, perhaps there is some room for optimism on the national security front. i think there arlet of different pieces that make up this puzzle, that portrays a bad picture of america, and guantanamo is one piece of the puzzle. there's the question of indefinite, the programs, the military program and the cia program, impugn any for -- impugnty for torture, and pieces in the puzzle that in my view fit together to present a bad picture of america. so i'm hopeful that in the second term the administration will pull those pieces apart and clean them up and put them back together to make a better picture. but an important piece of that is guantanamo. my concern with guantanamo, makes a nice bumper sticker, close guantanamo. but closing guantanamo in my view, just creates a new guantanamo somewhere else unless you address the underlying issue of indefinite detention. i think some -- tom some some others are going to talk about is in detail, but last year on the mental anniversary there was a lot of media attention and press coverage about the tenth anniversary of guantanamo
for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town. i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it. >> now, remind our viewers why so many democrats have been reluctant to even talk about gun control over these past several years. >> yeah. it's almost 20 years, wolf. it goes back to 1994. that was the big election which republicans took control of the congress.
.4 to fannie mae. there's a report published monday that says the obama administration spent nearly $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, more than the spending on all the other major federal law enforcement agencies combined. that is 15 times greater than immigration spending in 1986. the nonpart son migration policy institute says immigration has become the government's highest law enforcement priority. among those likely to be unhappy with this report, critics who say the administration has been soft on immigration violators. >>> president obama meets with his defense secretary today but it's not his new choice for that job, former nebraska senator chuck hagel that has republicans reeling. nbc's tracie potts is live in washington this morning with more on how his pentagon and cia nominations could prompt the next big fight on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. we're already seeing democrats and republicans here with concerns about hagel. john brennan, protests by aclu and others on that nomination. protests outside the white house questioning

: the obama administration really wants to crack down on the for-profit school issue. one thing they have done is that they have tried to strengthen the rules that too many other students are defaulting defaulting on their loans within two or three years of graduating, they will take away any federal aid from that school. the other thing they have tried to do is call the gainful employment rule. they would look at whether students are getting jobs after they graduate from that school. if not enough of the students are getting jobs, then they will take away federal aid. that rule was sent back to the education department. the judge said there was a problem with the process by which they put that in place. that rule is on hold. administration is trying to address that. host: the topic is college costs and student loans. here is a tweet."defunding univ problem." is the our next caller is named michael and he is a student from texas. go ahead with your comments. caller: i want to make a comment on someone earlier who was talking about how a high school diploma does not mean anything and that now a
administration has stepped up the use of drones overseas to target suspected terrorists. president obama's nomination of john brennan to be the next cia director suggests that trend is likely to continue. brennan, a strong proponent of drones as the president's chief counterterrorism advisor. for more on how the u.s. drone program works let's get to chief washington correspondent james rosen. he is live for us at the state department. james? >> reporter: jon, good morning. this program presents a consistent headache for the diplomats in this building and who must frequently contend with complaints from afghan and pakistani officials who say these drones all too often wind up killing innocent civilians instead of terrorists the drone program is one of the national security initiatives that president obama inherited from the bush administration and one which the current commander-in-chief has dramatically expanded. for all his criticism of president bush during the 2008 campaign over his conduct of the war on terror president obama has largely kept in place if not enhanced the architecture
